Thumbs up

Ive looked, but maybe not good enough. I cant find any parking/corner bulbs that are clear that blink amber and that have two metal contact points on the bottom. The only ones ive seen have just one contact point on the bottom and mine have two oval. I have a 1999 323is, any help on this would be appreciated!!

I'm sure that Sylvania makes some clear bulbs that are really clear, and blink amber, they aren't just coated or anything, its actually a slight blue clear glass, and it blinks orange for some reason.

also chrome coated lights aren't as bright as clear ones...

Hi all! New to the board.


This is related I think: I need to change the corner signal housing. It looks like I have to take the grille piece and or fender off to get at the clips....correct or not?

Nope. There is a clip on the side of the headlight. Use a screwdriver to reach it, pry it back, and the light be loose. Pull it out.

Go the cheap way. Buy the amber bulbs then buy silver spray paint and put a light coat on them. Very clean look. Can't even see the bulbs unless your right up on the car. I'd rather pay 2.52 instead of 20.00 for a bulb.
